Advanced Technology Services

In ITCL we understand the term Industry 4.0 as a new model of organization and control of the value chain of the productive cycle along the manufacturing systems, supported and made possible by information technologies.

Under this premise, we provide digital solutions throughout the production cycle, enabling the concept of ‘smart factory’ through the use of developments allow manufacturers to have a customized hardware platform, offering great flexibility and adaptability to the different types of industry.

We have extensive experience in advanced electronic design solutions. Software programming oriented to the control and management of embedded electronics, intended for implementation in capital goods. Our designs are carried out by integrating the latest microcontrollers and electronic components, maximizing the functionality to be implemented and the processing capacity.

Industry 4.0: Connected and sustainable industry

 

ITCL has more than ten years of experience in digital transformation for companies, combining cutting-edge technology with management systems and continuous improvement methodologies.

Our mission is to help the company identify opportunities for improvement from the knowledge of its processes and create value through the interconnection of all its areas.

Our digitalization support strategy focuses on 8 areas that can work together but that provide great value independently.

All our developments are flexible allowing us to customize the solutions to the needs of the company and are prepared to work in the cloud.

  • Design and execute MES (Manufacturing Execution System), e-factory and Scadas
  • Energy Efficiency: We help you to capture, monitor and control the energy consumption variables in your installations from any place in an intelligent and integrated way.
  • Big Data and Smart Factories: We perform advanced analysis of your process data and implement artificial intelligence applications that provide true added value.
  • Business Intelligence and Business Analytics.
Production control

We have implemented production monitoring systems in more than 70 companies in different sectors. We digitize the information of automatic, semi-automatic or manual processes through the use of IOT sensors, operator panels, machine PLCs, etc. Our systems are connected transparently with ERP systems, BI databases or other bidirectional, to enrich the production information and thus obtain a real-time image on any device, productivity and efficiency of processes and support production decision making

Energy control

The work of one of the research groups focuses its activity on the efficient use, monitoring and control of energy in production processes. All this knowledge and experience has been transformed into an energy monitoring and control system that allows us to have a detailed vision of the consumption of the processes and their optimization. In addition, this tool is connected to other tools such as production control, maintenance management, and so on.

Maintenance management

As an integral part of the digitization of the company’s processes and data, we have a maintenance management system integrated with the production and energy systems. In this way the company can plan and optimize its maintenance processes, reducing the impact on production. With the help of this solution the company will have a tool for the identification of breakdowns, risks, trends, etc.

Reports and data analysis

The digitization of the company involves an enormous amount of data and the efficient management of this data and its treatment are key tools to turn information into a competitive advantage. Each one of our solutions has data processing tools, visualization of indicators, etc. In addition, we can connect our solutions to other data sources to obtain KPIs that combine production data, energy, maintenance, planning (ERP, CRM), or any indicator that is key to the business. We also develop artificial intelligence algorithms for the efficient use of data and advice for your Big Data needs.

System integration

All our solutions seek the integration of the company’s knowledge and data in a global tool that provides the company with an integrated vision that supports strategic decision making about its processes and products.  We can connect our solutions to the databases of other company tools in order to extract or provide high value information at different levels of the company. For example, extract manufacturing orders from the ERP, transfer it to the operator panels in the plant and transfer the production information back to the ERP. We’ll get more detailed product cost control.

Lean tools and continuous improvement

One of the pillars of our solutions is the prior study of production and business processes. Together with the digitalization we offer a diagnosis of the processes and an accompaniment in the continuous improvement of the same ones. The information provided by production control tools, maintenance, energy, etc. serve as indicators of productivity and process efficiency. They can be used as indicators of opportunities for improvement and their effect. One of our greatest values is to share Lean and digitization to converge in high value solutions that increase the efficiency and competitive advantages of companies.

Warehouse and logistics

In line with the digitization and industry 4.0 tools, we have warehouse control solutions to obtain in-situ information on reception, exit and warehouse stocks. All this information can be connected to the production systems and ERPs of the company to increase control over the supply, movements and needs of the company. All our tools are developed to be used in mobile devices which gives them great flexibility and portability to be used where they are needed.
